Eamon Haughey (

Haughey photoFunding body: Teagasc; Animal Change Project

Eamon graduated from The National University of Ireland Maynooth in 2008 with a double honours B.Sc. in Biology and Chemistry. Following a year spent working and travelling across Canada he returned to academic studies and graduated from The University of Aberdeen in 2011 with a M.Sc. in Soil Science. In the spring of 2011 Eamon began a joint UCD and Teagasc Ph.D. project entitled; “can increased plant diversity in agronomic swards improve adaptation to drought?” Based primarily at the Teagasc research centre in Johnstown Castle, County Wexford this project combines a large field trail as well as glasshouse based experiments. It is hoped that by using more diverse agronomic swards, grassland based agriculture may be able to cope better with drought conditions which are predicted to become more common and severe in the future.
